A 40,000 square foot adventure park has opened in Gateshead. The Jump Giants venue in Dunston features dodgems, a soft play area for children aged five and under as well as wall-to-wall trampolines.
Thrill seekers can bounce into the Open Jump area, have fun in the Wipe Out zone, Ninja Court, Reaction Wall (a game with a light board that visitors jump and hit the buttons to turn off the flashing bulbs), Foam Zone, Dodgeball courts, Basketball lanes and on the Battle Beams where you can duel your friend until one of you falls into a fun foam pit.
Julian Henton, Co-Founder of Jump Giants explains, “We’re passionate about people of all ages and abilities coming together to have fun, and we’re constantly looking at new ways to surprise and delight people. Gateshead is the first of our parks to feature dodgems, and you don’t have to be an aspiring Lewis Hamilton to enjoy them. At the other end of the spectrum is our soft play area for children under five years old where little ones can scale new heights.”
The soft play area is included in the cafe, so parents can easily keep an eye on their kids while enjoying a range of delicious food and drink. Soft play includes a great area for babies too, all designed with the high standards in safety that Jump Giants is known for. The dodgems have six unique and custom cars. They’re round and hover style, which means they are easy to navigate, quick to get away, so drivers are able to do more dodging.
The park features interconnected bright green and purple angled trampolines and replaces the F1K indoor go-karting centre which formerly occupied the space.
The park costs £11 per person (three years and up) for an “open jump” session.
School term time opening hours are: 10.30am to 8pm Monday to Thursday (open until 9pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays), 9am to 8pm on Saturdays, and 10am to 7pm on Sundays.
